Running with WilburI fully expected to have to go running in the pouring rain today, but the weather gods seem to approve of my exercise experiment and surprised me with scorching sunshine. Huzzah! I was going to do a three-mile run, but since the weather was so good I brought Wellie along and did a five-miler with walking breaks. I have a couple of different loops mapped out around my neighborhood, and this is my favorite. It hits four different urban trail systems, so I only have to endure a measly two miles of asphalt.

I came home feeling fantastic (Wellie was pretty happy too), but then I suddenly crashed with a pounding headache. Maybe it was too strenuous for my body after being couch-bound for so long? Hopefully it’s nothing a little caffeine, a shower and a wee nap can’t fix.

Running songs of the day: Jimi Hendrix – Fire and Florence + The Machine – Cosmic Love (her whole album is perfect for running…but I might be biased since it takes me right back to the beaches of Kaua’i…)
